Politics Monday: Democratic Power Struggle and Bailey Kingpin | The 21st show

From Capitol News Illinois: The vote for State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez as the first Latino chairwoman of the Illinois Democratic Party was unanimous and uneventful on Saturday morning – the drama had occurred in the previous days in a fight for the power of some of the most prominent Democrats in the state.

Meanwhile, Republican gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey is much quieter about former President Donald Trump in the pivot to the general election. Bailey is challenging Democratic incumbent JB Pritzker.
